The clue about Wham! is factually inaccurate. Careless Whisper was recorded by both members of Wham during the height of their fame. Wake Me Up before You Go-Go came out about a month before Careless Whisper (May and June of 1984?). The song is actually credited as “Wham featuring George Michael” in the United States. Interestingly, Ridgley (Wham’s other guy) played acoustic guitar, but wasn’t given a credit in most music markets, except the USA. George definitely led the project, but the “later” in the clue is wrong/misleading.

sort of sad that George Eliot only scores 36% whereas several of the other Georges that have rather less merit score about double. (and I don't mean George of the jungle as I have never heard of that).
